The things a strong woman deserves in a romantic relationship may appear odd to some people. But she knows her worth and she’s not going to compromise on it.
If you’re a strong woman, you can sometimes come off as arrogant, cocky, and even uptight. But that’s no one else’s business, right? There are certain things you want from your partner and your relationship, so you won’t settle for less – and you shouldn’t.
Asking for respect, freedom, trust, or any other thing from this list is not, and never will be, too much. You know your worth and you know what you’re bringing to the table.
It may not be easy for you to find a partner who can live up to your expectations, but once he crosses your path, you’ll know he’s the one.
I assume you’ve been told you’ve watched one too many romantic films and now you’ve created an image of a perfect guy who doesn’t even exist. Ignore them. Your Prince Charming is on his way to you, darling!
So, what are the most important things not only a strong woman, but every single one of us deserves in a romantic relationship? Time to find out!
First and foremost – respect. Not a single relationship, romantic or not, can function without respect. Strong women will demand respect in their relationships because they know it’s something they deserve.
When they come across men who don’t respect them, strong women will just walk away. They won’t be bothered to explain their worth. I mean, why use words on someone who doesn’t value her?
A strong woman’s partner should learn to respect her time, obligations, and choices if he wants a long-term romantic relationship with her.
The second thing a strong woman deserves in a romantic relationship is for sure freedom.
Freedom to be herself, to do the things she wants, and to express her opinion out loud. She needs to have a life outside of the relationship.
She’s not going to be clingy and her man will have his own freedom as well. She needs some time for herself, and she wants a partner who will respect those boundaries.
After all, you both have been single long enough to know that sometimes me-time is crucial to creating and maintaining a healthy relationship.
Another thing she deserves is consistency. A strong woman needs a partner who is consistent in his words and actions. Someone who plays hot and cold is not worth her glance, and sure isn’t someone she’ll put under the spotlight.
Her partner has to be consistent in giving her the attention she deserves. If she notices her partner pulling away and she’s already tried to talk things through, she’s not going out of her way to figure out what’s wrong.
She won’t wait for him to make up his mind and realize that he has to put her first if he loves her.
Trust is fundamental in a relationship, and a strong woman deserves a man she can build strong trust foundations with.
At the beginning of any relationship, it’s not easy to trust someone blindly. But if she thinks her man is worth it, he’ll have her full trust and she’ll want the same in return.
Making some bold choices and being confident while doing so are some of her best traits. Her partner needs to trust that she’s able to conquer the world on her own if she decides to do so.
A strong woman needs a safe space to be vulnerable, so she needs an emphatic partner. Even though she’s tough, she needs safe harbor as well. She’ll need a shoulder to cry on and someone to celebrate her small wins with.
She needs someone who’s able to look at things from her perspective. Someone who will validate her feelings and not neglect them. Since she’s the empath herself, it’s normal that she looks for the same quality in her man.
She deserves a partner who puts the effort into their relationship. A man who makes plans with her, initiates weekend getaways, and supports his words with his actions – that’s a man worthy of her love.
She deserves a man who will go above and beyond to figure out what’s bugging her and will do anything to make her feel loved. If she doesn’t feel like her man cares, she won’t hesitate to walk away.
She’s a social being and she undoubtedly has a lot of friends. One of the things she won’t tolerate is her man making jealous scenes because she decided to go out and have fun with them.
She’s loyal to her partner and expects the same from his side. A man with unquestionable loyalty will definitely make her fall head over heels in love.
Being strong is a requirement if you signed up to live in this crazy world, and she’s used to being on her own. But sometimes we break within our four walls, and that’s when we need someone to hold us tight.
A strong woman wants a partner who will support her with both his words and his actions. She’ll gladly spend time with someone who’s her source of strength in the bad times and her biggest cheerleader when she’s striving for success.
9. Self-loving partner
Last but not least, she needs a self-loving partner. Someone who knows his own worth and is confident in who he is. If a man is sure of his traits, good and bad, and embraces them all, she’ll inevitably choose him.
When both partners are self-aware and self-sufficient, maintaining a healthy relationship will be a piece of cake!
